Skirting the Issue Prizes: Simplicity

Today's sponsor is one that we all know and love--Simplicity.  Simplicity patterns were some of the first patterns that I started sewing with, and still use today.  I love that they have various styles, from classic to modern to steampunk---there is certainly something for everyone.I also love that Simplicity has Sewing 101 tutorials, measurement charts and perfect fit techniques on their site.  It's a great resource for any sew-er/designer.  And the other great news of the day---a lot of their patterns are 40% off right now!!!!




Simplicity has generously offered 3 skirt entrants, a gift bag of 5 patterns of their choice along with some great trims that they have to offer.

While browsing the selection, I found quite a few that I would pick......but of course, the lucky winners get to pick their own!

I know this is blog is about children's wear, but I can't resist this blouse.  I love the style, the classic feel, but yet how modern it looks.  It would be so great tucked into a high-waisted pencil skirt.



I also love this Lisette pattern.  It is so darling with the high-low skirt.  My brain is already thinking of all the variations that you could do with this look.



Isn't this pinafore dress/top cute?  Again, the possibilities are endless with this pattern too.


And two final ones that I am loving as well.  This gunny sack dress on the left is so cute.  Modern-looking, but so comfy for a little girl to wear.  



I couldn't leave out this one.  Well, because I just bought it.  I have been thinking about a Fall short trench coat for my 7 year old and was going to draft my own.  But when I saw this one......I bought it immediately.  It is seriously everything I was envisioning but with the drafting work already done.  Thanks to Burda and Simplicity for that!!!  And I may be making a longer one too-it is such a great classic-done-well coat.




Our three winners of the Simplicity packs are:
